3 ab exercises you need to copy from celebrity trainers


Here’s one thing we can all agree on: getting a flatter, more toned tummy is always on our to-do list. And now that beach season is upon us, there’s no shortage of great ab moves from credible trainers to help you tighten your middle. In fact, all you need to do is open Instagram.

We scrolled through our feed and pulled out three core moves we are loving right now from three top celebrity trainers: Jeanette Jenkins (Pink, Kelly Rowland), Lacey Stone (Amanda Seyfried, Kelly Osbourne), and Simone De La Rue (Reese Witherspoon, Chrissy Teigen). Now, who’s ready to get CORE-geous!

Trainer: Jeanette Jenkins @msjeanettejenkins

Core move: Alternating Toe Touches

How to do it: Lie on your back, knees bent and arms extended overhead, with a jump rope, towel, or yoga strap pulled taut between hands. Crunch up as you lift right leg straight up, bringing foot to meet hands. Slowly lower back down and repeat the movement with the left leg. Do 3 sets of 20 reps.

Why its good: Our interpretation based on Jenkins’s use of the fire emoji: This move will light up those abs, leaving your midsection more defined.

Bonus: Up for a challenge? See if you can make it through the rest of the moves in her core-centric post: abs tucks, flutter kicks, oblique rotations, pike ups, and cross torso rotations.

Core move: Med Ball Side Throw + 180-Degree Jumps

 

This exercise is the sh*t. When you toss the med ball against the wall you work your entire core and the plyometric jumps increases your heart rate which makes you burn more calories and get results faster! Tag friend and challenge them to do this exercise twice this week Do 3 sets of 20reps, 10 on each side. Use a med ball that really pushes you but isn’t so heavy you lose your form.

How to do it: Stand with the wall on your right side (about 3-5 feet away), feet wider than hip-width apart, knees bent, and a med ball in hands positioned at left hip. Brace core, rotate torso and pivot on the right foot as you release ball toward the wall. Catch the ball and jump 180 degrees so that now you are facing the opposite direction, and the wall is on your left. Repeat motion. Continue alternating sides. Do 3 sets of 10 reps per side.

Why it’s good: When you toss the med ball against the wall, you work your entire core, and the plyometric jumps increase your heart rate, which makes you burn more calories and get faster results, Stone writes.

Core Move: Single Leg Mountain Climber

How to do it: Get into a high plank with left toes on a gliding disc or towel. Bring navel toward spine and tilt pelvis under. Slide knee in toward navel, pause and then kick leg back. Start with 10 reps per side, increasing reps as you get stronger.

Why it’s good: Youll feel it activating in your lower abs, De La Rue says in the video post.
